Something different.

An ambidextrous bowler who switches within an over.

I remember Brian Close could bowl with either hand, but I never heard of him switching in the same session.

Rangana Herath, the last player who played Tests in the 20th Century has just been runout for 5, as England win their first overseas Test Match since 2016 :D

I didn't think he was out!

His bat touched the line as the keepers gloves touched the stumps.

It was a dead heat.

The line belongs to the fielding team, so unfortunately he was out.

Great Test Match in Sri Lanka, 19 wickets to spinners, the other was a run out, first away winning series for a couple of years :D

The last time that happened it was at Old Trafford in 1956, Jim Laker took 19!

And a guy called Tony Lock took the odd one.

No wonder Lancs were relegated with so many players in the England squad.
